Cloud Computing is simply a way to access and process your company’s data, applications, e-mail,and other forms of media over the Internet. It eliminates the need to own computers or servers as all of the data and processing is stored in datacenters and delivered via the Internet through secure and encrypted connections. Cloud Computing has actually been around for over a decade, but recent advances in technology have made it more accessible to the masses. You’re likely using some sort of Cloud service today. If you have an online e-mail account, use Facebook, or watch movies on Netflix, you’ve been taking advantage of the Cloud. You can access these services from your computer, television, tablet, or even a smart phone.
Although the Cloud has gained many users on a consumer level, most small/medium companies have not yet implemented any true Cloud technology. The main reason is because there have been very few simple turnkey Cloud or desktop virtualization services that businesses could affordably use…that was until LevelCloud! More and more businesses are taking advantage of LevelCloud and freeing themselves from servers, upgrades, and overall I.T. headaches. They can work from anywhere, at any time, and from any device without having to worry about their data being lost or corrupted. It is always on, always available, and delivers everything employees need. That is true Cloud Computing!
How Does Cloud Computing Work?
You may have a basic idea of what Cloud Computing is, but you’re still wondering how it all works. You probably use many Cloud-based services as a consumer, so you actually already understand the basic concept. We’ll explain it in more detail in language that makes sense.|How Does Cloud Computing Work?
Private Cloud vs. Public Cloud
We can help you understand the differences between private and public Cloud environments and enable you to determine which is the best option for your company and budget.|Private Cloud vs. Public Cloud
Cloud vs. Hosted Desktop
Although people often use the terms Cloud and hosted desktop interchangeably, they have very notable differences. Hosted desktops do not necessarily eliminate your need for onsite equipment nor do they offer the same reduction in maintenance and cost savings.

Cloud Computing vs. Grid Computing
Grid is to Cloud as chassis is to a car. Grid Computing is a one component of true Cloud Computing. Learn how Grid Computing makes Cloud Computing possible.|Cloud Computing vs. Grid Computing
Cloud Computing vs. Software as a Service (SaaS)
Like Grid Computing, SaaS (purchasing software on a subscription basis as needed rather than owning and updating software regularly) is one component of Cloud Computing. Learn about how SaaS makes Cloud Computing possible.|Cloud Computing vs. SaaS
